A landmark in LGBT fiction, this captivating story of two teenage girls who fall in love is a &́#x80;œclassic of the genre&́#x80; (Publishers Weekly). When Liza Winthrop first lays eyes on Annie Kenyon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she knows there&́#x80;™s something special between them. Soon, their close friendship develops into a deep and intimate romance. Neither imagined that falling in love could be so wonderful, but as Liza and Annie&́#x80;™s newfound sexuality sparks conflict in both their families and at their schools, they discover it will take more than love for their relationship to succeed. One of the first books to positively portray a lesbian relationship, Annie on My Mind is a groundbreaking classic of the genre. The subject of a First Amendment lawsuit over banned books and one of School Library Journal &́#x80;™s &́#x80;œOne Hundred Books that Shaped the Century,&́#x80; Nancy Garden&́#x80;™s iconic novel is an important story for anyone discovering who they&́#x80;™re meant to be.

If you want to know what true love feels like. Read this book. It was amazing!

Enlightening on homophobia and the struggles of being a lesbian in a judgmental and myopic society. The plot was average, though, in my opinion.

A sweet love story about two seventeen -year-old high school girls. In 1993 the book was not just banned from the Olathe School District, but some members of the community burned it. Author Nancy Garden recently passed away. Here's a nice tribute to her work: http://www.slj.com/2014/06/obituary/annie-on-my-mind-author-nancy-garden-dies-at-age-76/

BEST BOOK EVER

I really enjoyed this book and I completely agree with happyvegan's comment somewhat. But in my experience, all relationships can have their complicated times no matter what. But this story, despite the complicated parts, made a great story about perseverance and growing up. I would recommend it to any teen that wants a coming of age type of story

This was the first book I read after coming out to my friends; it was suggested by one. It's an absolutely lovely read and one that I recommend to anyone looking for lesbian fiction.

I loved the book. I think that the two girls had a right to be together and then the one teacher comes and ruins their happiness. I would recommend this book in a flash.

I decided to read this book because I thought it would be a new, different, and interesting perspective to read, as I've never read a story about girls' love before. I found it to be quite a good book, and it kept me intrested until the very end, with every twist and turn. However, I found that the ending was just a bit less than satisfying, so I think it lost points from me there. It's still worth reading, though.

"Have you ever felt really close to someone? So close that you can't understand why you and the other person have two separate bodies, two separate skins? I think it was Sunday when that feeling began."
